Arthur Peake's Commentary on the Bible
Psalms 34



Verses 1-22

XXXIV. Yahweh's Care for His Own.—An acrostic Ps., the letter Waw being omitted as in Psalms 25. Yahweh's care of the poor who fear Him.

Psalms 34:5. Read with LXX, "look to him," "be radiant," "your faces."

Psalms 34:7. "The angel," i.e. the angel who represented Yahweh (cf. Malachi 3:1, Isaiah 63:9).

The acrostic is complete with Psalms 34:21; Psalms 34:22 is an addition for liturgical use (cf. Psalms 25:22*).
